Torlon® 7130 is an 30% carbon-fiber reinforced grade of polyamide-imide (PAI) resin. It offers high strength and modulus, exceptional creep resistance, and good fatigue resistance. It has thermal expansion characteristics similar to steel, and therefore excellent dimensional stability. Torlon® PAI has the highest strength and stiffness of any thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F). It has outstanding resistance to wear, creep, and chemicals. The potential applications for this resin include metal replacement, sliding vanes, aerospace parts, impellors, shrouds, pistons, and housings. It is available in injection molding and extrusion (E) grades.
